The roots of the ancient and distinguished German surname Junta lie in the province of Westphalia. The name is metronymic in origin, deriving from the female personal name "Judith," Hebrew for "of Judah." It is likely that the original bearer of the name was the child of a woman named Judith.

Junta Early Origins



The surname Junta was first found in Westphalia, where the name is thought to have first emerged. The earliest known bearer of the name was Volmarus filius Junta, who was a resident of Basel in 1290. The young Junta family was instrumental in the development of medieval Westphalian society, and played a major role in the early history of the region.
